Young Guns at it again

It’s that time of year again when I am simultaneously envious and impressed by the talent of the YG Finalists. I always feel extremely conflicted with industry awards—but can still certainly appreciate the calibre and effort it takes. Each and every person deserves to win but I wanted to share some of those in the Graphic Design section that stood out to me, as the list can be pretty overwhelming!

Anjela Freyja
An independent art director and designer currently based in Montreal. Lots of delicious typography to drool over here.

Badal Patel
An independent graphic designer, art director and photographer based in NYC. I love Badal’s use of colour in so many of her projects.

Felipe Rocha
A Brazilian designer and creative director. Felipe is the co-founder of Porto Rocha and has an incredible amount of work under his belt for someone under 30 years old.

Jon Key
An NYC artist and designer. This website is more focused on his art side of things and very much worth looking through.

Zuzanna Rogatty
A New York-based Polish designer. You might recognise Zuzanna’s type work from the Collins Ideas section.

Stay safe and healthy folks,
